Andreas is right. The field need to be set into the acroform and link  
with an annotation. This annotation need to be added to a page.

Take a look at PDDocument.addSignature(...) there you should find what  
you are searching.
In this signing example I merged the field with the annotation.

Rigth, you can also provide us with the malformed pdf document to see  
whats wrong.

Best regards
